Ahoy mateys! I’ve got some exciting news for all you Disney cruise fans. Disney Cruise Line has revealed exciting new details of their next new ship – the Disney Treasure!
Set to debut in December 2024, the Disney Treasure will be the sister ship to the Disney Wish that launched in 2022. The Treasure will sail mostly 7-night itineraries, which complements the shorter 3-4 night length cruises of the Wish. This is similar to how the Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream function for the length of adventures.
The Treasure and the Wish will depart from Port Canaveral giving guests access to Disney’s Castaway Cay and Lighthouse Point, which will open in 2024.
What to expect onboard the Disney Treasure
Owing to the longer itineraries, the Treasure will be jam-packed with adventures and magical experiences for families.
The Disney Treasure’s design will be inspired by the theme of adventure, honoring Walt Disney’s passion for travel and exploration. Guests will be immersed in Disney stories like Aladdin, Coco, and Zootopia through interactive and theatrical experiences. Many new areas of the ship draw inspiration from Disney’s iconic and beloved theme park attractions.
Some of the highlights include Plaza de Coco, the first-ever Coco-inspired family dining experience, and the return of the Marvel-themed restaurant Worlds of Marvel. There’s also a new 1920s Hollywood-inspired restaurant called 1923 that celebrates Disney animation.
Get ready for a scoop of Zootopia-themed sweets at Jumbeaux’s Sweets! Inspired by the charming ice cream shop in the movie, this pink paradise features statues of Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde plus treats galore including 20 gelato flavors, 16 ice cream and sorbet flavors, candies and more!
Entertainment wise, the ship will feature dedicated shows, character encounters, and musical performances in the Aladdin-themed Grand Hall. There are also returning favorites like Beauty and the Beast and Disney Seas the Adventure shows in the Walt Disney Theatre.
I’m particularly looking forward to Sarabi. Named after Simba’s mom Sarabi from the classic Lion King, this two-story space called Sarabi Lounge will be the place for fun family time and nighttime hangouts just for adults.
With its open layout inspired by the beautiful savanna, Sarabi will host some classic cruise activities like Match Your Mate during the day. Then at night, it transforms into an adults-only den of mischief and mayhem with new entertainment like Villains Game Night.
For kids, the Oceaneer Club sounds like a blast with Marvel and Star Wars themed play areas. And adults can indulge in specialty dining, plus bars and lounges inspired by 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the Jungle Cruise.
The Periscope Pub will include encounters with the undersea magic you might encounter on the Nautilus, including creatures from the live-action film.
The Skipper Society will feature all the kitschy design and humor guests love and expect from the iconic Jungle Cruise attraction.
Like the Wish, the Treasure will feature an Aquamouse water-coaster inspired by Mickey Mouse animated shorts, but jumping off the theme of the new ship, its story will center around the “Curse of the Golden Egg.” AquaMouse will follow Mickey and Minnie on a zany misadventure into an ancient temple. Guests will journey as the pair tours mysterious ruins seeking legendary treasure, encountering hilarious mishaps and booby traps along the way.
Built for families, most rooms have Disney’s very useful split bath design and with 450 connecting doors so bigger groups can voyage together. You’ll feel like you’re on the high seas with ocean views from most rooms and 877 verandahs.
But if you’re really looking to cruise in style, check out the concierge level. These luxury suites come with dedicated service and an exclusive lounge with sun deck for relaxing and sipping cocktails. The concierge suites have elegant Lion King designs – I’m talking majestic grasslands that’ll make you feel like royalty in the Pride Lands!
And for the ultimate Disney stateroom, you gotta see the four royal suites based on Bagheera and Rajah. I’m jealous of anyone staying in suites themed to the Jungle Book’s panther or Aladdin’s tiger. Can you say aww-worthy?
Disney has packed even more Disney magic into this new ship. It truly will be a palace at sea. I can’t wait to sail away into adventure on the Disney Treasure in 2024! Let me know in the comments if you’re excited about this new ship and what experiences you can’t wait to try!
